Congrats on your new home!

Now you just have to figure out how you’re going to pack and move everything without breaking the bank, your fragile lamp, or your back. Good thing we put together this list of 5 easy moving and packing tips that will make your move dead simple.

How do we know these tips will make your move dead simple?

We have highly experienced expert movers, packers, and professional organisers. If you’re in need of storage, get in touch with us and we will handle all the heavy lifting for you.

Tip 1. Get rid of what you do not need before packing and the movers start.

Get rid of all the unused and unnecessary items you want to eliminate from your home, which will give you less stuff to pack up, haul across town, unload, and re-organise.

Be ruthless with your stuff. That coat you think is cute but haven’t worn in four months? Donate it. The very first coffee maker you ever bought that flavors your morning brew with little pieces of rust? Trash it. Doing a massive preliminary purge will have the single biggest impact on the efficiency and ease of your entire packing process.

Tip 2. Sort things by category.

Instead of spending a day cleaning out your entire bedroom, spend an afternoon sorting through every article of clothing you own. Scour every coat closet, dirty clothes hamper, and laundry room until you’ve got all your clothes in one place. Then sort. Do the same thing for books, shoes, important papers, and the like.

Tip 3. Make space.

For everything, you don’t want to take with you but can’t say goodbye to yet, schedule a meeting with us we will help you move it to storage.

We’ll pick up all your stuff (yep, even your heavy furniture), store it in our secure and temperature-controlled storage facility, and create an online photo catalog so you can see everything without having to visit a self-storage unit.

The best part: Whenever you need an item back, all you have to do is select its photo and we’ll deliver it to you.

Tip 4. Pick the right moving day.

Hire us at least a month out so you can plan accordingly. If you have a flexible schedule, play around with potential moving dates and try to find the cheapest time of the month to make an appointment.

We are busies at weekends, so if you can skip the Saturday chaos and schedule your move for a Tuesday, you might get a significant discount.

 

Tip 5. Label moving boxes.

The key to finding your stuff easily is labelling all your packed boxes accurately and clearly. When you’re stacking boxes in a van or car you won’t be able to see their tops, so make sure you label the sides as well. But don’t stop there.

Label the boxes by category and by room (for example, BooksLibrary and BooksBedroom) to speed up the unloading process.

Or if you’re more of a visual person, use colour-coded electrical tape to label your boxes instead.
